The Sunspear is a main-hand melee weapon that requires level 75 Attack to wield. It is earned upon completion of The Lord of Vampyrium. Like blisterwood weapons, it can damage all vampyric creatures, though the damage does not increase with the number of vyre corpses cremated.
Vyrewatch, vyrelords, and vyreladies killed with this weapon will automatically have their corpses cremated, granting Prayer and Firemaking experience dependant on the player's levels. In addition, vyres killed this way have a 20% chance of dropping loot similar to that given by shiny columbarium keys. Cremating corpses in this way does not count towards the player's total.
When using abilities, the Sunspear can be combined with a higher-tier off-hand weapon (such as an off-hand drygore mace) to increase ability damage without impacting the ability to damage vampyres. Auto-attacks will require an off-hand blisterwood sickle in order to deal damage.

In the year 163, the Sunspear was retrieved by a party of eight people, made up of Vanstrom, Kendrick, Gar'rth, Ben Strainge, Tam and three others. During its retrieval, Tam and the three others were killed by bloodveld, Ben was wounded, and the four survivors were captured by Vanescula Drakan and taken to Tenebra. When Gar'rth attempted to use it on his father, he failed, and Ben and Kendrick were killed. Gar'rth was subsequently imprisoned for his assassination attempt.
When Gar'rth was reunited with his father, Tenebra used the dagger on Vanescula, though she somehow survived. During the battle at the River Salve, Gar'rth managed to stab Tenebra when he was weak, and Kara-Meir finished him off by stabbing Sunspear into the base of his skull.
After the completion of The Lord of Vampyrium quest, the Sunspear may be used as a main-hand melee weapon. After recovering it from Drakan's body, but before completing the quest it cannot be wielded. It has the chance to automatically cremate vyre corpses, negating the need to cremate the corpses in the Paterdomus Columbarium. The cremation rewards from the Sunspear are very similar to those of Shiny columbarium keys.
Should the player speak with Kara-Meir on Tuska's corpse while carrying the Sunspear she claims to still have it, and that it is a dagger, not a sword. She and the player then speculate that both weapons might have originated as parts of the same spear, hence 'spear' in the name of these weapons.

- An update was made to the Sunspear on 5 October 2015 that changed the cremation mechanic of the weapon. The chance of receiving loot similar to that of shiny columbarium keys has been lowered to around 20%, from 100%, cremation count will no longer increase while killing Vyrewatch with this weapon, and on the opposite side, will now grant up to 4x more Prayer and Firemaking experience per kill, based on your current levels.
- A blisterwood sickle can have higher damage with sufficient vyre cremations, but the Sunspear will have better overall damage per second than even the maxed blisterwood sickle, due to its faster attack speed and higher tier (75 instead of 70).
